Homemade Mexican Chorizo (Turkey)

Submitted by: LADYIRIS313

Introduction

If you miss chorizo & eggs for breakfast as I did, this recipe from ChowHound is a great substitute. You can also use ground pork, but the calculation is using ground turkey. You also control what goes into the sausage, as store bought chorizo can contain lymph nodes and other nasties.
